RH golfer

1st Choice = VKTR+ 18* hybrid, stiff flex shaft

2nd Choice = 14* 3-wood, MRC Tensei Blue 70-S (stiff) shaft

13.4 USGA Handicap Index

I do not play long irons (5-iron, and sometimes 6-iron is the longest iron in my bag).  Instead, I play a 5-wood and one or two hybrids.

What works best for your long game?  Do you prefer to go for the gusto with fairway woods, or perhaps seek the control of a driving iron, maybe the forgiveness provided by hybrids?  Well the Ben Hogan Golf Company has options available in all three categories.
